THE BATTLE OF LEYTE GULF

by Thomas J. Cutler 

A revealing study of this vast and controversial battle fought by the US and Australian Navies against the Japanese fleet off the Philippines, 23-26 October, 1944. MacArthur's landing on Leyte Island was supported by massive Allied Naval forces commanded by Admirals Halsey, Sprague and Kincaid. The attack by Japanese Admirals Kurita, Ozawa and Nishimura was to lead to one of the bloodiest naval battles of all time. The Japanese fleet was decimated with 26 losses including the Heavy Carrier 'Zuikaku', 3 Light Carriers, 4 Heavy Cruisers and the Battleships 'Fuso', 'Yamashiro' and 'Suzuya'.

DELPRADO/OSPREY AIRCRAFT OF THE ACES (MEN & LEGENDS): 
                                                                  FW 190 ACES ON THE ATTACK

by John Weal. Editor-in-Chief Juan Ramon Azaola

The FW 190 was the scourge of RAF Fighter Command from the moment it appeared on the Western Front at Abbeville in August 1941 with II./JG 26. A nimble, speedy and well armed adversary, the 'Butcher Bird' quickly proved superior to all Allied fighters at the time, particularly at medium to low altitude. With colour profiles and artwork by John Weal and Mike Chappell and scale drawings by Mark Styling, this volume is a splendid data source for enthusiasts and modellers.
